[Resolved] Easy FancyBox doesn't work with IE8?

  • Hello,

    I’m using Easy FancyBox on my website, but if I have Easy FancyBox turned on and someone’s using IE8 (or lower), my site get’s stuck in loading and crashes.
    If I’m using a newer IE version, or another browser (for example Firefox) everything is all right.

    Is this a known problem? And how can I fix it for now? (Is it possible to deactivate this plugin only for IE8?)

    Hi, do you have a link to the site where this is happening?

    Here you go.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ben bang dat ik zelfs de voorpagina niet open krijg in IE8.

    In Chrome I see a long (50+) list of “Failed to load source…” errors in console ranging from missing theme script, image and font files to spotify (?) script requests that meet a 102 Connection Refused error.

    Not sure how to debug this as I cannot even get past the front page…

    Yes, that’s true, but those errors aren’t IE8 causing to crash.

    Because, as soon as I’ve deactivated your plugin, my site loads good.

    So I know that there are some errors in my site’s theme, but these aren’t the problem of the crashing IE8.

    What happens if you visit http://demo.status301.net in IE8 ?

    … That site works in IE8…

    OK, I think I have spotted the issue. It’s in the dynamic css from http://erikkrebbers.nl/wp-content/plugins/easy-fancybox/easy-fancybox.css.php?ver=1.3.4 where for some reason, there is https used instead of http on your server. Is it a Windows server?

    The demo site uses the latest development version of Easy FancyBox so you might try that version too just to see if that makes a difference on your site. There have been some changes to the dynamic stylesheet generation.

    You can download it from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/easy-fancybox/developers/ under Other Versions, then un-install the current version (!) from your site and install the zip from the Upload tab in the WP plugin installer. You might need to check your settings on Settings > Media and you can ignore the still empty new options page under Appearance.

    Let me know when you installed it and I’ll take a look at the dynamic stylesheet again.

    Thank you so much! I’ve installed the development version and it works! It doesn’t crash anymore!

    And uhh… I have to admit that I don’t know which kind of server I’m using, but I thought that is isn’t a Windows server…

    Excellent. Thanks for testing 🙂
